What is the sound of Airloom? Sexy vocals, funky pumping basslines, saxophones, live percussion and uplifting, hands in the air, dance floor vibes. This is the sound of Airloom.

I first met brothers Corey and Todd (better known collectively as the DJ duo Airloom) back in 2001 when they were spinning at a lower east side spot called Bauhaus.

Some friends and I randomly walked in, only to be surprised with a setting I hadn't experienced in awhile. They were serving up quality house music just the way I like it - funky, deep, and discofied. And the crowd was energetic and absolutely loving it. What more could a house junkie ask for?

With NYC's reputation as a house music capital, you'd think this vibe would be easy to come across. Unfortunately, these days it's few and far between. Sure, there are a handful of big name djs keeping things going (Francois K, Neil Aline, Timmy Regisford, E-Man, etc), but when it comes to soulful, floor-rocking house that is guaranteed to move a dancefloor, I have to say that Airloom is among the top.

Since they came onto the scene, Airloom has electrified audiences throughout the East Coast with their sound. Their 1-year residency at Bauhaus was just the beginning. Soon, offers from the biggest party promoters in the city started pouring in, and they launched a hectic DJ schedule playing on a regular basis at some of the hottest house music spots, with some of the most notable DJs. It was not too long before they landed jobs on the decks at venues such as Cielo, Lotus, Pacha, Marquee, Guesthouse, Crobar, Bed, Dirty Disco, Cain, PM, Sol, and Le Souk, playing alongside the likes DJ's Axwell, Mark Farina, Jamie Lewis, DJ Disciple, Ian Carey, Andy Caldwell, Jon Cutler, Pete Moss, Jojo Flores, and Felix Da Housecat.

If you are a fan of labels like Defected, Soulfuric, Buzzin Fly, Mixture, Mn2s, and Onephatdeeva, you will definitely like Airloom's style.

Airloom currently holds a weekly residency at Le Souk in NYC's alphabet city. Check here for dates and other upcoming performances.
